Here at daisykins nursery the babies had the opportunity to explore a nursery rhyme app on a computer tablet. The babies used their fingers to touch the functions on the screen, they pressed an icon and watched with amazement as to what happened. The children listened to the different songs and moved their feet and hands to the rhythm of the music. This learning experience enabled our babies to show curiosity and explore ICT at a young age.
